Hi Folks , today I have this image of a Red-Winged Blackbird that was shuttling a beak full of grub back to the nest for her chicks. on my last outing it was a common scene to see, many species are now feeding young that will be soon to fledge.

thanks for having a look

Hallo Art
Super shot with lovely details captured. A well focused and pleasant image of this beautiful bird with its prominent markings. Great composition and pose. The detail of the feathers and the area around the eye is displayed well, and of course the prey in the Red-Winged Blackbird's beak is an additional bonus. Thanks for sharing. Best regards

Hello Art,
Beautiful photo of this Red-winged Blackbird in good sharpness and colours. The contrast against OOF BG is great. Also a good composition and POV.

Hi Art,
this is a fantastic shot and a pretty moment to see this nice bird with so much prey.
It is sitting there in a nice pose and I love the good sharpness and the BG.
Very well done, thanks

Hi Art.
Many thanks for visit my page and nice comments. Unfortunately, I have missed many shots of my friends and yours too. They all are simply great. This one is not exception. Amazing diagonal composition, superb vivid colours and ultimate details of the bird, its food and on a cane. Perfect job. My best wishes and TFS.

Art, this is a great shot of this bird. You did a great job capturing it. Have a great weekend, Bill

Bonsoir Art,

Nice sharp image well exposed. I love the blureed BG on which the bird stand out beautifully. Good composition and seeing the bird with an insect in its mouth shows its activities and its food. Good shot and TFS.
